Love’s Journey

Once young, and behaving willy nilly

Doing things together no matter how silly

That was because love was blind

It kept our growth in a bind

Used to be we were joined at the hips

Sometimes, it would be our lips

But as one grew older, opinions and experiences differ

Your mature mind started to decipher

One would decide to make one’s mind

That might not gel with your lover’s kind

At this point, things may start to fall apart

If not remedied, your paths may part

The solution is mutual respect

As each has his or her unique aspect

Accept that one needs his or her personal space

To continue to grow at one’s own pace.
